Running can help you reduce the risk of any type of death by 27% and by 30% for cardiovascular disease, a new study reports.
The good news is, you don’t have to run much…
“They found that nearly any amount of running—logging less than 50 minutes per week—lowered the participants’ risk of early death from any cause by 27 percent. Additionally, running led to a 30 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 23 percent lower risk of death from all types of cancer.”
You also don’t have to run fast. Even running at less than 6mph (me on most days) is fast enough!
